____ 14. Provide free post high school, public education for students whose parent(s) have an annual income of less than $100,000. 

____ 15. Reduce taxes for small businesses; increase taxes on large corporations. 

____ 16. Provide more restrictions on the ownership of firearms--with comprehensive registration, background checks, and national standardization.

____ 17. Legalize commercial hemp, medical marijuana, and the private use of marijuana for adults, on a national level. 

____ 18. Call for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 with subpoena powers,  especially in regards to Building 7, which was not even hit by a plane, but fell at the speed of gravity into its own footprints at 5 pm on that tragic day.   And Building 7 was not even mentioned in the initial Official 9/11 Commission Report, an investigation that was not done until 2 years later and then by government insiders, with an extremely limited budget.     

 ____ 19. Provide incentives for local and organic food production and alternative health practices.  Require that all genetically modified foods be labeled.

____ 20. Allow citizens of the 50 states to restructure their state governments from the bottom-up, not the top-down: from the neighborhood block club, to the precinct, township, county, and state levels. Each level of legislative government can make executive and judicial branch appointments.  Representatives at a state level, for example, can be voted out of office completely at all levels by the voters in the precinct, township, or county that the state representative emerged from. Representatives at each level would vote among themselves to send a representative to the next level above it.  State constitutions can be rewritten using a democratic process.    

____ 21. Increase abortion rights and the rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered individuals.

____ 22. Empower the seven largest, national political parties, using a system of proportional representation to elect 100 individuals to meet at a Constitutional Convention to rewrite the U.S. Constitution, in which the delegates will work for three entire months to get a 51 percent or higher approval of any proposed, new constitution.  (In other writings, this author has laid out a 23-month timeline for this process to occur).

____ 23. Establish workplace democracy in companies that have seven or more employees. 

____24. Allow Americans to visit Cuba if they choose.

____25. Bail out the the people--no more bailouts of the big banks.

____26. Stop the drone strikes, the abuse of the Patriot Acts, the Guantanaomo torture prison, the needless NSA spying, and the excessive security measures at airports.

March 20, 2020 I grew up in a church that said you had to speak in tongues to get saved and go to heaven. I often prayed fervently for the experience in the prayer room at church, where people would cry and wail, and roll on the floor. One (more...)
